Buick has unveiled its latest electric vehicle, the Envista, a midsize electric SUV that combines a sleek design with a spacious interior and impressive performance. The Buick Envista is based on the same platform as the Cadillac Celestiq and GMC Hummer EV but has a distinctive identity and features.
A low and wide stance, a sculpted body, and a striking front fascia with a large grille and slim LED headlights characterize the Envista's exterior. The grille also houses a light-up Buick logo and an illuminated strip that connects the headlights. The rear end features a full-width LED taillight bar and a roof spoiler. The Envista rides on 22-inch wheels and has a panoramic glass roof that adds to its airy feel.
The interior of the Buick Envista is equally stylish and spacious, with a minimalist dashboard that features a 12-inch digital instrument cluster and a 15-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The infotainment system supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and Amazon Alexa integration. The Envista also has a head-up display, a wireless charging pad, and a Bose sound system. The cabin can accommodate up to five passengers, with plenty of legroom and headroom. The rear seats can slide and recline for added comfort and cargo space. The Envista also has a large trunk with a hidden storage compartment under the floor.
The Buick Envista is powered by two electric motors, one on each axle, that deliver a combined output of 340 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque. The motors are fed by a 100-kWh battery pack that provides an estimated range of 300 miles on a single charge. The battery can be recharged at up to 150 kW using DC fast chargers, which can add up to 195 miles of range in 30 minutes. The Envista also supports regenerative braking, which can be adjusted using steering wheel paddles.
The Envista is not only fast and efficient but also smart and safe. It comes with Buick's Super Cruise system, which allows for hands-free driving on more than 200,000 miles of compatible highways in the US and Canada. The system uses cameras, radar, Lidar, GPS, and maps to monitor the road and the driver's attention. The Envista also has other advanced driver-assist features, such as automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, surround-view camera, and parking assist.
The Buick Envista is expected to go on sale soon. Pricing has not been announced yet, but it will likely be competitive with other electric SUVs in its segment, such as the Ford Mustang Mach-E, the Hyundai Ioniq 5, and the Tesla Model Y. The Envista will be one of the first vehicles to showcase Buick's new direction as an all-electric brand in North America by 2030.
The Buick Envista is a stylish and spacious electric SUV that offers impressive performance, range, technology, and safety features. It is a great choice for anyone looking for a premium and practical electric vehicle that stands out from the crowd. @via Buick.
